What does it mean to be a modern woman?
A modern woman knows how to live In harmony with herself. She doesn’t have to choose a family or a career, she lives the way she wants and chooses both , being a wonderful mother, daughter, wife and successful at work . I split my time between work on TV, modelling, charity , and social activities”. I’m successful in everything I do regards my career, but same time I always find time for family and close friends, without them I wouldn’t be where/who I am right now.

When does a girl become a woman?
A girl becomes a woman when she begins to feel differently, becomes mature and having responsibilities, she starts to take care of herself more, to invest her strength in self-development. When she is filled with wisdom, perhaps from her parents, from books or from life experience..she becomes more restrained, serious and begins to make plans for the future.

How do you handle disappointment?
In order not to be disappointed, you do not need to put hopes. We usually get frustrated at the moment when we put too high expectations on some events or on some people. I usually make more demands on myself, expect from myself and accept other people as they are. And I understand, that all events happen when they should happen. And so that we realize something. Therefore, there is not much disappointment in my life.
